PETE ROZELLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

In Topsy Turvy Wibbly Wobbly NFL, Bucs are 2 games out of first place, 1 game out of #1 draft pick!

Pete Rozelle is watching football from heaven, smiling upon his dream of NFL Parity. Although I believe parity is less of a thing since the redistributing of teams in 2002, here are the Bucs in the middle of the most incredible turnabout season in years. If you think the Rams going for it yesterday takes the cake, look at the Bucs, who Bucs are chasing the Panthers, or are they...

Column: Goodell could have taken page from Rozelle

What a difference a commissioner makes. Pete Rozelle hadn't been on the job long enough to find the executive washroom when he faced a gambling scandal a half-century ago that could have sunk the NFL. League investigators had discovered star Green Bay running back Paul Hornung and Detroit Lions lineman Alex Karras were betting on games. The news had yet to break, and the young commissioner...

Yes, coverage of NFL draft has changed a bit; Flashback to what ESPN did in ’81

I love posting this video every year. For a little perspective about coverage of the NFL draft on ESPN and NFL Network, it’s always good to see how ESPN covered the NFL draft in 1981. It was all so primitive. Check out the guy who had to turn on Pete Rozelle’s microphone. A favorite part is a young Chris Berman getting reaction from a restaurant in New York, complete with the...

The Simple Story Of How The Seahawks Came Into Existence Practically Overnight

In the wake of Seattle’s first major sports championship in 35 years, it’s worth revisiting how the Seattle Seahawks came into existence in the first place — and it’s a story that, on the surface, seems quite simple. Back in 1974, when Seattle was a Supersonics-only town, the city had already broken ground on a stadium (the Kingdome) that could potentially house an NFL team...

Ravens must beat Bengals and hope for help to overcome Pete Rozelle's dream of parity...

It's playing out just as the late Pete Rozelle envisioned it...  PARITY... it would be a rare team that could re-PETE after winning a Super Bowl... And so the defending world champion Ravens find themselves at 8-7 having to knock off the 10-5 Cincinnati Bengals just to have a mathematical chance to qualify for the 2013 playoffs as a botttom seed.... and even then, they will...
